So which station is which? I know both WJZ and WBAL are there but I'm just curious to know which station is which?

Sorry, WJZ is on the left side and WBAL is on the top right parcel of land where it looks like the property boundaries cut through a parking lot.

Promo for CBSN Denver with a launch soon. Looks like they modified the secondary set in Studio B, which dates back to ~2004.

I say Denver & Philadelphia- Beginning to Mid January since their studios are pretty up to date to start.

Sacramento & Pittsburgh- Beginning to mid February.

All other markets: Within 2nd Quarter, with Baltimore being last.

Just saw a CBSN DFW promo on KTVT.

 

Was it specific at all, or a simple "coming soon", or what?

I saw it. It was pretty generic. Just a “coming soon.” Didn’t mention any date or show any studio.

'TVT needs an upgrade. I want to see 11  get a set like KCBS, KOVR, WBBM, & WCBS. The other CBS O&Os like KYW, KPIX, and others needs upgrade and new sets launching CBSN in their region fast.

I know where the CBS Tower is, but where is the CBSViacom center?

Add WJZ-Baltimore has having a recent main studio upgrade.. However, they also need a major upgrade for CBSN Baltimore.

Since we are approaching the end of January, so far no launch date for CBSN Denver and Philadelphia since both were supposed to launch this month.

Ok, but I was using Weatherboy's naming convention, as I didn't know what he meant.  I know that KTVT/KTXA's main facilities are in east Fort Worth, but I couldn't tell what he meant, if he meant some other place I wasn't familiar with, or what.  And, I didn't know there might be other special names besides CBS Tower used for their local facilities, sorry.

Last week, CBS's local television stations – CBS 11 and TXA 21 – announced they were moving their Dallas newsrooms and offices to the Coit Tower at 12001 North Central, north of Forest Lane.

That high-rise will be renamed the CBS Tower. The studios and offices were previously located in a company-owned property at 10111 North Central.

Didn't this happen forever ago? I swear I drove by that building when I was in Dallas last March.

KTVT left the building at 10111 North Central Expressway and relocated in 2013. In 2015, it was sold to a developer and today it is home to a SpringHill Suites hotel.

TVNewsCheck states that Pittsburgh could be next in February.

The CBS press release did say that its scheduled to debut then, and that's probably very likely because they already have the weather graphics in place. Also the Nightly Sports Call got a new set on Monday, and that show's old set will most likely turn into the CBSN Pittsburgh set, I would imagine...

From Feder, CBSN Chicago could be launching at the end of next month.

 

Quote

Derek Dalton, president and general manager of CBS 2, said he expects to launch CBSN Local here by the end of March. Considering that the station’s news operation is already stretched to the limit, I’d love to know how it will allocate resources for the new venture.
